I made a promise I would not be bombarding you with Christmas/winter artwork yet here I am, already breaking that promise, by sharing another sample I made for the Crafty Individuals Winter Frost Challenge.
At the time of making the ornament featured in this post HERE, I also made another ornament, working with the same or similar materials and with the same set of stamps, CI-446.
onelynneI have been dipping quite a bit into metallics (paints, sprays and other various medium) for Christmas/winter 2015.  In previous years I have favoured white on white with shimmer and sparkle as my absolute first choice and also forcing myself to dip into bolder use of colours, such as the cards featured over at Somerset Place (I still haven’t fallen in love with those cards … more on them in a future post) and I also really like Kraft with Gesso and sparkle for Christmas but this year I have been drawn to metallics, in other words, expect more projects featuring metallics!
Most times I work in multiples.  It wasn’t always the case and I don’t know if I have fallen into this habit due to submitting artwork to Stampington, especially when it comes to cards when I tend to create a collection.  Like I say, I don’t know the reason but most times it is the way my mind works, make one and before I know it, I am in the middle of preparing a second or third!twolynneI would have liked to have had the ornament hanging up when photographed so you could see how the metallics catches the light but it just wasn’t happening to had to give up and photograph it laid out flat.fourFor this and the Noel ornament I wanted to slightly change the appearance of the cardstock, beyond the painting and the stamping.  Initially I thought about a Fresco Metallic or Pearl Glaze but when I saw a bottle of Ice Resin Paper Sealant I decided to use that and have to say I really liked the outcome – not that you can really tell by way of the photograph.
A trio of rhinestones simply adorn the front and hopefully add a wee dash of elegance.fiveThank You for your visit to this blog post and remember, if you have any Crafty Individuals products in your stash and want to create some Winter Frost artwork, then click the link at the top of this post to visit Jean’s Crafty Individuals blog to read details on how to enter the challenge.
Many thanks for your visit to this scheduled post.  My next scheduled post will be Sunday, for That’s Crafty.

(I linked up to Prima’s 6th Day of Christmas as my ornament features a beautiful Relics and Artifacts wing)

    I love this as much as the first shown, dear Lynne, it is so very stunning and with the wing from Sandra, so special, and beautiful too.
    Wonderful with the pearl chain you added, and the lovely word framed with the Maimery paste, and know it must be amazing with the metallics ,too .
    A little art wonder !!!

    I always enjoy seeing your colourful work – so interesting when people step outside their comfort zones – but I must admit that the vintage neutrals look is the one I’ll always associate with your work. I love the sparkle and shimmer entering the lists for Christmas and this is a beautiful example. Lovely distressed look to the word panel and the jewelled embellishing is wonderful.

    Hi There Lynne!! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been by! I’m trying to catch up and I can see you’ve been a busy girl!!! Look at you go!!! I love this beautiful, vintagey ornament that you’ve created!! I love the chain hanger and the angel wing lends an ethereal feel–like this just fluttered in and landed perfectly on your work space for you to take a quick picture, before it fluttered off to its next destination 🙂 Oh and the rhinestones?! Classy and posh–PERFECT!!
    OH–I love the set of cards that you linked from Somerset!! They are bright and festive and I can’t wait until you share your behind the scenes of those!! 🙂 🙂
    Happy Weekend my Dear Friend!! 🙂 🙂 XOXO-Shari

    I love these ornaments, Lynne – so elegant and beautifully wintry with that suggestion of magic in the air. I would love to see them hanging from branches in an enchanted wood. xx

    Even with the metallics, Lynne, this piece speaks of your work. The lace, material, and jewels are typical elegance we always see from you. I think it is a lovely piece and the metallics work well for a wintery, Christmas look. Well Done! inkybruxx
